    Hi All:
    
    The ill-fated 1999 Pegasus XL/WIRE launch is old news, but it may be of some
    historical interest. I photographed that event and finally had the negatives
    scanned earlier this year. The final images are now online at:

    That was a dusk launch and it was a fine display thanks to the vehicle
    climbing into sunlight. I photographed the second stage burn, but missed the
    impressive third stage exhaust plume because the hill I was on was in the
    way (luckily, See-Sat member Rick Baldridge captured it).
    
    Regards,
    
    Brian Webb
